! [splash!] the era of big government is over but it's not. it is getting bigger. what is in store for our future? tonight.

a growing resentment toward the current government. please is demanding more security and more autonomy. let's go to tripoli. let's talk about what some of those issues are. some of those issues that people have with the tripoli government. the east, people there have a lot of reasons. this is why the government and officials chose to hold the official ceremony for the anniversary year. they want to show the people that we are here to serve. the people there believe that the government is marginalizing the east similar to what happened during the gaddafi regime. people want to see more services. people want security. we heard the head of the general national congress talking about money to fight corruption and fix security in order to allow for development. these are just words. people want action. when you talk to people in tripoli, it's different. people here are more willing to give the government said chance for more time, but we have to understand that this is not just about improving the daily lives and their standard of living. some of them are even calling for annual central governme

>> and deepening the turmoil in to ease yet as the prime minister withdraws from the government. it is the latest twist in the political crisis facing that country after days of unrest. also coming up, fresh fighting erupts between rebels and military forces after a suicide bombing in bally. a new american general takes charge of the forces in afghanistan, but what are the challenges he faces? and that the chinese new year. more than a billion people around the world aren't really in the do your of the stake. -- in that do year of the snake. to these is in the middle of what's being called its biggest political crisis since the country unleashed the arabs from uprising two years ago. in the latest twist, the secular party has withdrawn his ministers from a coalition government. hamadi jebali. opposition leader was -- opposition leader, shokri belaid, a shot dead. by saturday, but the party only agreed to a national unity government comprise the politicians. a deadline to form a national unity government expired on sunday without agreement, which is why the president's party has
of the tribal government and communities. i am also pleased to welcome our distinguished guests in washington d.c. and those listening around the country to the 2013 state of andean nations. across the country, students, teachers, businesses have gathered to watch this event together. among many events we are pleased to be joined by students from the laguna middle-school, boys and girls club have a greater scottsdale tribes like the muscogee creek nation, confederate tribes in the tele, reservation and hosting tribal parties brought this is by many areas of the country have also pleased to be joined by the college of the nomination, the american indian college fund. these are just a small selection of events happening today and they want to thank them and all of you for joining us. we have an incredible turnout here in washington d.c. and i like to acknowledge your guess in the studios of distance-learning. and the administration which showed it a lot in the white house. dr. ruby doe from hs, lillian sparks administration are native americans and also representatives of key federal agencies tha
the time that labour was in government, if you were in a private sector rented home and you were in receipt of housing benefits, you did not get any benefit for empty rooms. i think that is important. it is only fair we treat people in social housing the same way. the second point is that if anybody is away from home, obviously their earnings are not counted. therefore the benefits that person are likely to go up. >> mr. speaker, i look forward to explaining why her paying 25 pounds a week more from april is not a tax on her. as for his point about the private rented sector, i think he misunderstands the point of social housing. the purpose is to protect the most vulnerable. according to the government's own figures, 2/3 of the people hit are disabled. let me tell the prime minister about an e-mail i received last week. my wife is disabled, has a degenerative condition and is cared for in bed. due to her illness and my condition, i usually sleep in the spare bedroom. why is it fair for him and hundreds of thousands of others disabled people like him to be hit by the bedroom tax? >> as with
it's the caution of our problems. the economic downturn happened because our government didn't tax enough, spend enough or control enough. therefore, as you heard tonight his solution to virtually every problem we face is for washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more. this idea that our problems were caused by a government that was too small is just not true. in fact, the major cause of our recent downturn was a housing crisis created by reckless government policies. the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard working middle-class taxpayers, that is amp old idea that has failed every time it has been tried. no government is going to help you get ahead, it is going told you back. more government is not going to create more opportunities, it's going limit them and it won't inspire new ideas and new private sector jobs. it's going to create more uncertainty. because it breeds complicated rules and laws that small businesses can't afford to poll because more government raises taxes on employers who pass the costs on to their employees to
in support of the government and against the the prime minister's plan to dissolve it. the search goes on but there's no trace of the meteorite that left a trail of destruction across central russia and the winner is, we'll be live from the berlin film festival with news of who's got the golden bear. thank you for joining us. a bomb targeting people shopping for vegetables has once again highlighted pakistan's deep sectarian tension. at least 60 have been killed in an explosion in the southwestern city of quetta. more than 200 were injured when a bomb exploded outside a market. police say it was aimed at the region's minority shia population. attacks in quetta have killed more than 200 in the past month. we have the latest from islamabad. what more do we know about this attack? >> hi, barbara. what we know is that this bomb, which went off in this market was very powerful bomb. it was an improvised explosive device and more than 60 people were killed and well over 200 people were injured. this attack, of course, comes
of folks out there would need less help from government. folks should not have to wait year after year for minimum wage to go up while ceo pay has never been higher. so here's something that govern ann romney and i agreed on last year -- that governor romney and i agreed on last year. to's raise the minimum wage a level you can live on. tonight let's also recognize there are communities in this country where no matter how hard you work, it is virtually impossible to get ahead. factory towns decimated from years of lance packing -- of plants packing up, inescapable pockets of poverty, young adult still fighting for their first job. america is not a place is not a place where circumstance should decide our destiny, and that is why we need new ladders of opportunity for all who are willing to climb them in the middle class. it's offer incentives to companies who hire americans who have what it takes to fill that job opening but have been out of work so long, no one will give them a chance anymore. it's put people back to work rebuilding vacant homes and rundown neighborhoods. this year my
, the medicare c is the money, the federal government says the money. but there is the different costs associated with the subsidies would extend coverage and the medicaid expansion. so it's not exactly a win-win situation according to the analysis that the kaiser family foundation has conducted. >> i do endorse her briefing that we did in december. a lot of different materials and a webcast that you can watch. we have several related questions and maybe john can take the first crack at it. it has to do with medicare advantage plans. they ask generally how does star rating system works. that is related to a question that was not asked here, but was passed by the senate office, which ask how come a lot of money went to three-star plans this time around. we could relate that to this question. they are related. explain how it is scheduled to take effect. i understand that only about 4% may have taken effect now. do you anticipate that some of the problems that you have referred to and perhaps lesser benefits could show up in this again. >> i will try my best to answer every question. before the affo
a change. we know it is not government. we know there is too much government already. we'll incentivize businesses and incentivize investment and take this country forward into more economic prosperity. i don't think that's what we're going to hear but that would certainly be a breath of fresh air for the american business community. neil: he will talk about the need for more revenue, the need more more taxes. enough already. we gave you that. we'll not give an inch more. are they right to take that stance? >> they have to take that stand. i think we're to the point we can't borrow anymore. we can't tax anymore. if we tax anymore, we have the highest corporate tax rate. most people that the are running subchapter-s corporations, small businesses are now paying close to 50% if you're in a state like california, new york, you're paying more than 50% in tax. the top 5% pay over 50% of the income tax revenue in this country. this has to stop. the president has to stop this. and i don't think, i think he understands government. i don't think he understands that a vigorous government requires
to reform the economy and government spending soon, the u.s. could find itself in the same terrible economic situation as many european countries do today. this is just over an hour. [applause] >> thank you john for your very kind introduction and the invitation to speak at the heritage foundation today. it's a great privilege to be here. i have always been a great admirer of heritage and the council and in many cases the friendship of many people here at heritage for a very long time i have also admired the way that heritage works across policy areas so that you really do here and integrated message. not least among which i think is the intention of the heritage foundation to the power of culture, by which i mean people believe ideas, habits and expectations in the way that these achieve some form of institutional expression. this issue of culture and how it relates to the economy is at the heart of my book, "becoming europe" because at one level becoming europe is certainly about what has happened in europe and why it is now regarded as the sick man of the global economy. my book is also a
. that the economic down tun happened because the government did not tax enough, spend enough, or control enough. as you heard tonight, his solution to virtually every problem we face is for washington to tax more, borrow more, and spend more. this idea that our problems were caused by the government that was too small, it is not true. in fact, the major cause of our recent downturn was the housing crisis created by the government policies. the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help middle-class taxpayers is an old idea that has failed. it will not help you get you ahead it will hold you back. it will limit your opportunities and more government isn't going inspirnse more idea, new businesses, it's going to create uncertainty. more government breeds complicated rules and laws that small businesses can't afford to follow. more government raises taxes on employers who pass the costs on to their employees to fewer hows, lower pay, and even layoffs. many government programs that claim to help the middle class often end up hurting them. obamacare was supposed to hel
love. it is our unfinished task to make sure this government works on behalf of the many and not just the few that it encourages free enterprise, rewards initiative and opens the door of opportunity to every child across this great nation. [ applause ] >> the american people don't expect government to solve every problem. they don't expect those of us in this chamber to agree on every issue, but they do expect us to put the nation's interests before party. [ applause ] >> they do expect us to forge reasonable compromise where we can, for they know that america moves forward only when we do so together, and that the responsibility of improving this union remains the task of us all. our work must begin by making some basic decisions about our budget decisions that will have a huge impact on the strength of our recovery. over the last few years both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion, mostly through spending cuts, but also raising taxes on the wealthiest 1% of americans. as a result, we are more than halfway toward the goal of $4 trillion in def
and government reform. >> without objection, so ordered. that concludes the items of the business on the agenda for the house budget committee's organizational meeting. we will now proceed to the c.b.o. outlook meeting. if dr. elmendorf will take his usual and customary pgs. -- position. kind of feels like groundhog day, sunt it? let me -- let me start by welcoming our new members, we have members who representative different areas, different view, different philosophies. i want to start by saying how much of a pleasure it is to serve on this committee. this is the kind of committee where you get to bring your ideas to the table and air them out. we've got enormous fiscal challenges ahead of us. we've got a debt problem we all acknowledge must be dealt with. we've got a deficit that needs to be brought down. we've got an economy that needs growth. -- growth. and this is one of those areas, up with of those committees where we need to have this debate. we're going to be processing legislation, we're going to be considering alternatives and i want to say on behalf of those of us on this side of t
the united states state department was an extension of the israeli government. things like that are unnerving. there is at least one speech he gave that he did not report that we think there is a copy of that we may get in the next few days. that is why i should -- i would oppose cloture today. i will vote for it after the recess. host: senator lindsey gramm of south carolina. joe is on our independent line. caller: i have interest in giving you a call because i have been doing research on the government. at this time, i have to publicize to the world that the government has committed an act of tyranny. they are doing what they should -- -- they are not doing what they should be done -- be doing for the sake of our people. and this time to play hardball against these individuals were shown in the past 80 years who have not been in the better interest of our children. that means 300 million of us need to get really involved in our government and participate. these guys do not care about this. history is showing it. the congress and senate -- this is why the federalists, james madison, set up t
, legislation that keeps the government funded and running. he wants to keep that separate from sequestration. explain why and what might happen on that. >> i think it is a stop-gap measure. it is not a real bill or appropriation bill that funds the government. it is basically avoiding government shut down. i don't think mr. rogers was to have a discussion on how to avoid the sequestered until we get very close to a government shutdown if people cannot agree on which to do it. one thing we did discuss, that is important for people to understand is that the sequestered woodcuts overall government spending by $1.20 trillion for the next nine years. this year, it would be $85 billion. how rodgers, the way he would present, he would write that the government would be funded the way it was last year, but if the sequestered takes effect, it would cut off -- >> a big part of this process? >> it is unclear exactly how all of this will work. part of it is that sometimes, if you talk to some of the people, the new were more ardent er moreatives, -- the new wer conservative members, they take the view t
to school on government money but is against government. aside from the awkward drink of water, i think his real problem is that it was the wrong night, wrong city. tuesday night in washington, wednesday night in new york. there is a place called the apollo. amateur night on wednesday night at the apollo. >> ouch. that hurt me in the crossfire. lawrence o'donnell. >> it was a major proposal that he kept under a certain wracked by not mentioning the number. he said that he was willing, in this negotiation, to avoid the sequestered and offered to the republicans' medicare cuts. he did not specify an amount, just the same amount that the bulls commission wanted. he suggested arriving at them in very vague ways, one having more affluent seniors play more. there are a variety of ways to do that. one of them, probably were most of the savings would be, to change the nature of medicare payments from a fee-for-service system, which is very reassuring to the patience, to something that he was very vague about but was probably an overall fee for a patient in which the doctor, many would argue, begins
/11 between central government and the tribes and communities on their borders, on the areas between states. so, therefore, without an understanding of local culture or history, it's impossible to implosion immiss stick notions. i know we here in the united states sigh this as a class of civilization but talk to one? iran or yemen and they will just look aghast at the concept there's a clash of civilizations. 90% of the survey had no idea what 9/11 was or who osama bin laden was. so, of there, we have to be very careful of how we are analyzing the contemporary world, and i maintain there's a crisis already existing in those parts of the world that the united states has now drifted into and got involved in local conflict. >> host: so ambassador ahmed, do locals in afghanistan, different tribes, see the u.s. as attacking their personal tribe or see their own afghanistan government? >> guest: peter, you have now raised a very important question. you raised the third actor. so you have the united states, you have the tribes, and you now rates the idea of the central government as a third person

. >> well, good evening. and behind us here tonight, the entire government will be gathered in one building for the president's state of the union address, and in many ways, tonight the real work of the second term of the obama presidency begins. at least the part the president would like to accomplish and where he sees the nation headed. he faces, of course, a sharply divided congress, sometimes violently so, and a divided viewing audience. here tonight, a nation starting to see some daylight after years of recession, and it's the long, suffering middle class that will be the target of much of his message tonight. we should tell you at the same time, we are following a very tense news event, across the continent on the west coast in the san berardino mountains, gunfire and then a fire over an hour we've been watching this in a cabin in the woods believed to contain the sniper, ex-cop, the military veteran that has terrorized southern california for days. another loss of life tonight. a police deputy there confirmed dead and if this situation is resolved, we're keeping a close eye on it, we
that the government can continue, should there be, god forbid, a massive attack on the building behind us. tonight, it's energy secretary steven chu. this person is known as the designated survivor, if you can believe it. a term of distinction. savannah guthrie, let's talk about the atmospherics in the hall, what we can see, and what will be off camera. >> we touched on it already. the atmosphere in terms of the bitterness and the divided nature of our government right now. if you talk to republicans and democrats, the view you get of the other party is just so stark. as far as the speaker and republicans are concerned, the president emboldened, confrontational, wants to obliterate the party. on the side of the white house, aides think the republican party is fractured, weak, vulnerable, unable to govern itself and unable to make deals to solve the big problem and you've alluded to it, an incredible emotional weight inside this hall tonight, because of the many, many victims of gun violence there. a coordinated campaign by one congressman to have multiple victims of gun violence sitting there in the h
that put big, big bets. we're lucky we have mit and caltech, but we are not at the country, the government side or the corporate side, putting those investments together and that's what i worry about. we're not investing more into it, when not going to be the ones that read the benefits. >> i think that's the question. is their net, whatever its taking place, in basic technology to support the stuff that you want to do. >> it's the case were lots of research as an economist would put a social -- the private return is insufficient to generate the private sector. and so that's why i think we have to look for more of these types of partnerships between government, industry. so one good example of this is collaboration that the federal government has with the semiconductor industry, where, so simply no amount institutions like bell labs, which created large investments in developing the first transistor, government and industry are now cosponsoring a series of university-based centers of excellence at mit and stanford and berkeley and ucla that our first alternative figure how do we take, as f
explain how the fall the government for the private sector is the key to opportunity for hispanics such as himself and other minorities to climb the ladder up into the middle class and beyond. >> governor, they can't label he's a big rich fat cat. because he just paid off $100,000 student loan go. ahead. >> yes. and what he did, though was give a very logical discussion of why big government gets in the way, doesn't help, and whyy jaiting -- creating job incentive is the best way to deal with people who aspire to grow up the economic sail. it's a great speech. >> i think it was the best response for state of the union. it's a tough speech to give. that i've seen, governor, we've got to roll. thank you. >> thank you. >> that is all of the time we have left this evening. thank you for being with us. th president's fourth state of the union address. welcome to special coverage of president obama's fourth state of the union address, the first state of the union of his second term. earlier today, house speaker john boehner predicted the highly partisan speech and said this president doe
. the national economy is stagnant, and the federal government on which our state has become so dependent over the years is faltering. weighed down by $16 trillion in debt. while new mexico has seen some job gapes in certain private -- job gains in certain private sector industries, there is no question that the number of government jobs is on the decline. last year new mexico lost more than 4,800 government jobs. 400 federal jobs in a single month. on top of that, many private sector companies that contract with the federal government have seen those contracts cut costing us more jobs. unfortunately, it doesn't look like washington, d.c. is going to solve the budget problem anytime soon. it's the fault of both parties, and can it's hurting -- and it's hurting new mexicans. i am committed to working with our delegation to protect our labs and military bases fighting to avoid further cuts. our labs and our bases are not only important to new mexico, but they're critical to the security of america. however, with a federal government that is so far in debt, so dysfunctional we'd be foolish to lea
are investing in clean energy instead. >> and the importance of this particular decision the government must make on the xl pipeline in terms of the continuing crisis of climate change in the country and around the world? >> that is the challenge. last year we had record droughts and record wildfires and temperatures a full degree above. the first big test of the president for his commitment to climate change is whether or not we're going to build the pipeline that would take almost 1 million barrels of oil every day, the dirtiest oil on the planet, ship it through the u.s. and have most of it be exported. what we're trying to do is to convince president obama he needs to put his full muscle and full ambition to match the scale of this challenge. not just about the pipeline, but making sure we're turning away from fossil fuels, the most extreme sources of dirty energy everywhere, drilling in the arctic, blowing the tops of our mountains, building this tar sands pipeline -- all of those would deepen and extend our dependence on fossil fuels when clean energy is growing by leaps and bounds. it
got a penny from the government, never even asked for it. let me say that i think america has become a country where we want the easy way out on everything. i would suggest that most people in this country have not worked with or in the federal government to actually see how representatives and our representatives in the white house -- and our members and the white house to use that money. it is unbelievable how much money is wasted in this federal government. point number two is that i say to my democratic friends, if you want to pay more taxes you are more than willing and able to do so. there are a group of people that want to pay more taxes, let them pay more taxes. anyone can go ahead and send more money into the government. maybe that will help our system. most families have the budget, but the government doesn't understand the budget. host: for you, no new taxes'? and you think republicans should hold the line on that even if it means these automatic spending cuts go through on march 1? caller: yes i do. i think they should go through. the congress has had three or four years
. it's a remark sight, state of the union address. the entire united states government is there. the gray hiavd gentleman there in the center of the screen is the new white house chief of staff who may have the second toughest job and attorney general eric holder but the entire government is here. all of the senate and house and cabinet and joint chiefs of staff. the supreme court, it's quite a remark sight. on a slightly grizzly note, one member of the cabinet is always told to stay away to be in effect in hiding so if something should happen, there would be somebody to run the u.s. government. in this particular case it is energy secretary steven chew. i was there at the briefing that he gave today and he really went after the president. he said that he lacks the courage hearing lacks the guts to take the liberal side of the party and made his basic point that president obama would pursue and he does in his speech tonight, taxes on the rich, but unwilling to get tough on entitlements which, of course, is an anathema to the left wing of the party. >> while he has refused to agr
position .nd your government's i have to say to you here in parliament that the socialist and democrats are a minority -- a minority in the european council. i hear your message, but perhaps you might also pass it onto the heads of state in government in your own party's. that might be a good thing, indeed. [applause] i will make a commitment here to you today. throughout the council, i will continue to quote mrs. dole, the messrs. hunt said if i have to. the others, i'm not sure they will be much help. but i'm happy with what i have heard none the less. it will not all be on my shoulders. i am the head of state and our represent france at the european council negotiating table. i am not going there with rejection in mind only or not to be open to compromise. i am looking for compromise, because i want the youtube project the best image of itself that it can, that is -- i want the european union to project the best image of itself that it can, that is to say, looking at the processes and understanding the doubts that this is have and then taking into his iteration the decisions that are
